“A quarrel ensued when a policeman started slapping and beating him in my presence after an argument. When another officer joined the quarrel to beat him, he started retaliating,” he said.

According to the father, three more policemen soon took sticks to beat his son to a pulp.

“The situation made me leave the police station immediately as I could not stand the pain of seeing my son being beaten on a simple matter that can be resolved among parents.

Crying profusely, Mr Madobi added that when he reached home he sent the elder brother of the deceased to plead with the police.

Also narrating how the incident happened, the elder brother to the deceased, Ahmed Nasir, said the policemen ignored his pleas and kept beating his brother until he fell down unconscious with his mouth foaming.

The family then appealed to the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, and commissioner of police to ensure that justice is served.
